2016 update

The A-Z challenge went well this year only two done but what a blast.

J Jungfrau a great trip a marvellous run and a hugely satisfying experience.

K Kielder an off road race just 2 hours from home and organised by none other than Steve Cram.  Part of a festival including a 10K, half marathon and duathlon.  Well worth a visit.

Book Review-Dividing the Great

A page turner by John Metcalfe.  This is the story of the authors trip down the Great Divide from Roosville in Canada to Antelope Wells in New Mexico a 2500mile mountain bike route which he completed with his long suffering friend JK.

Witty and well written the book has the right balance of stats and descriptive narrative.  The writer manages to give a daily account of social, economic, historical and geographic facts.

Describes potential problems you might encounter if you fancy tackling the route.

A great read.
